A terrorist by any other name

Wired is reporting in an article this morning that a man who shares his name with a suspected terrorist (now held by the US government at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba) has to get special clearance from the FBI every week when he flies out of his home town of Rochester, NY to his consulting job.

The article continues to describe that the use of the TSA names list is increasing as is its size. The complaint centers around the aggressive use of common names on these lists and the relating inconvenience (or harassment) to those with similar names.

I, of course, have no frame of reference for this problem.
